…’Girls Standing On Lawns‘ by Maira Kalman And Daniel Handler, 2014.
Maira Kalman and Daniel Handler sifted through MoMA‘s archive of old snapshots and found a lot them had to do with the same theme- girls on lawns waiting for a family member or friend to take their picture. So, they selected some favorites and got busy- Kalman with her illustrations and Handler with his prose to accompany them.
For me… I got busy photographing Kayla sitting on the lawn. :)
